Slow speed of submissions

12
1

@admin

The submissions are taking a long time to process (just like what happened during LONG contest)

Since it is just a mere 3 hour contest, it can be of concern. Also, snackdown pre-elimination also begins after lunchtime today, it can be a serious inconvenience during that if not fixed.

To fellow members- Please send a mail to codechef and report the issue. More mails will mean quicker action.

EDIT- A big thanks to the community for co-operation. Sources say that the contest has been CANCELLED as it cannot be extended (due to Snackdown pre-elimination round). It will be UNRATED, and codechef will be briefly in read only mode to fix it (so that the issue doesnt occur in snackdown pre-elimination)

If problem persists in Snackdown pre-elimination too, I will re-open this thread and edit the title, so we can report the issue here (my perspective says that there is no use creating 2 for similar issues)

@admin Will winners still get laddus? And when will we get laddus for previous long?

(27 May '17, 20:59) dushsingh19954★

@dushsingh1995 - i think its not possible as contest didnt run for full duration. I feel that laddus wont be given this time...

Yeah I missed that

(27 May '17, 21:03) utkarsh19974★

Can we not submit any more even it is unrated ? or is that we can only submit once the contest ends ? sad that it went unrated. :(

(27 May '17, 21:14) jaideeppyne5★

You can submit when they finish fixing the issue. Most probably when snackdown pre elimination begins...

(27 May '17, 21:17) vijju123 ♦♦5★

The thread has been re-opened on request (and returning of slow submission in may loc- Submissions taking ~4-5 minutes each). Users are reqested to vent out any grievance related to slow submission here so @admin can view everything in a single thread.

With Regards Vijju123

(29 May '17, 23:57) vijju123 ♦♦5★

The issue seems resolved now. The thread would be left open for future cases. Thanks for co=operation :)

I don't want this contest to be rated. At least for me. This is not done. Anyone else who wants the same?

I agree. See problem teleport. As of 8:24 pm, it has ZERO submissions, some taking alot of time. It wont be fair to keep it rated under this circumstance...

Totally. My first submission took 20 mins for a verdict that will indeed make my rank fall drastically. All those months of hard work gonna go away because of a server issue. @admin Make the contest unrated.

(27 May '17, 20:28) nagpalkaran954★

I think it is safe to assume that the contest won't be rated.

(27 May '17, 20:33) giorgosgiapis5★

A problem affecting 100% users for over 33% of time...Yes. Its a very strong argument to make it unrated.

(27 May '17, 20:35) vijju123 ♦♦5★

It has been cancelled.

(27 May '17, 20:46) siddharthp5384★

In my opinion contest should become unrated or extended. However extending the contest for at least 30+ minutes(which is the time lost) will make it collide with Snackdown Pre-elimination. So making it unrated is the only solution.

PS I hope the issue will be resolved by the time Snackdown starts otherwise it will ruin all the fun.

LUNCHTIME is canceled

"We are facing issues with the #LTIME48 contest problems and couldn't handle submissions. Keeping SnackDown Pre-Elimination 2017 contest into consideration, we have decided to cancel LTIME48 and make in an unrated contest. The site will now be in read-only mode for sometime.

The number of submissions for the LTIME48 contest overwhelmed our judge servers and most of the submissions went into the queue and increased the judge processing time. Keeping SnackDown Pre-Elimination 2017 contest into consideration, we want to keep our judge servers in the best possible state and hence we have decided to cancel LTIME48 and make it an unrated contest. We regret the inconvenience caused.

Yes, I noticed they are taking quite a while to submit. Maybe two contests on the same day are causing this problem? Hopefully the Pre-Elimination isn't affected.

Because of this we don't know either we submitted correct code or not and then we start dong other until one is processed. If in the end code isn't right then our ranks will regrade. This isn't expected by codechef.

We all feel you. My code hasn't been submitted for 45 minutes now. Just refresh the page and try again. Codechef will have to make this contest unrated. Extending won't be optimal since it will clash timings with SNACKDOWN.

(27 May '17, 20:31) akashbhalotia5★

I think the condition is similar to ICPC online test or snackdown qualifiers, I don't think making it unrated is fair. As this happens in almost all big contests on codechef where huge participation is involved.

There is an issue with judge due to lots of submissions. They need to fix it and hence made site read only. We can only wait for them to fix the issue dear :(

(27 May '17, 20:51) vijju123 ♦♦5★

If they allow us to submit, then it will still keep the judge busy.
